Is your home Merry & Bright for the holidays? You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg; a simple spruce-up will do, and start with the floor. The experts Cherokee Floor Covering can tell you about some great cheap floor covering ideas that look anything but cheap!
1. Hardwood. “Really,” you’re asking, “hardwood as a cheap floor covering?” Yes, especially if you stick with some of the domestic species, like hickory, pecan, white oak, maple. They can be less expensive than you think.
Also consider the big picture when it comes to hardwood. If taken care of properly, it can last for years. Often, all that’s needed is a refinishing, not a replacement, so you won’t be spending money over and over again.
2. Laminate. A lot of people consider this the “king” of the cheap floor covering. It’s stylish, easy-to-clean, highly durable and resistant to light (avoid those puddles!) moisture. Because of modern technology, you can get an incredibly realistic look of hardwood. It’s so strong and durable that it’s often the preferred choice for the kitchen or kids’ bedrooms.
3. Luxury vinyl tile: Luxury vinyl is 100 percent waterproof, but it does have seams so there are more opportunities for water to get through. While it can be more expensive, it can still be cheap floor covering because there are many choices and you’re guaranteed to find something in your budget. You can get any look from hardwood, tile, stone, marble, slate or more.
4. Carpet: Get creative and make your own unique pattern with carpet remnants. Think of this also: Select a neutral color and you’ll constantly be able to do mini-remodelings just by changing the accessories, because it goes anything. Also, if the carpet’s wall-to-wall, it’ll give the room a more expansive feeling and, as one person said, “It creates another sitting option.”
